The Color of Fear
book 2 - tba

First sentence(s):
The first sighting took place at the Kirriemuir Cemetery in Angus, Scotland, on an otherwise unremarkable Tuesday evening. is reporting strange phenomena in cemeteries in Scotland, Germany, Italy, and America. Only one individual knows what's happening - and why! This person also knows the one girl who can prevent an unspeakable and imminent catastrophe from taking place. But will she? When Caitlin Fletcher's mom disappeared (or left?) four years ago, Caitlin began suffering from breathless bouts of anxiety. Her new move to London, with her Dad and her brainiac sister, threatens to lead to more situations that will trigger panic. Now, she's having anxiety over the possibility of having anxiety! Caitlin's life takes a turn for the bizarre when she's tricked into climbing down a "rabbit hole", landing in a wondrous fairy tale universe - except it's crawling with savage, starving blood-eyed zombies. But what's scarier - a blood thirsty zombie, a panic attack....or the painful truth?!


My two-bits:

You are in for a wild ride with this one ;-)

This fast-paced action adventure tale is set in a zombified world of favorite fairy tale characters that pulls you in and down the hole to Wonderland.

High functioning royal princess zombies accompany the main character, Caitlin, as she navigates a Wonderland adventure.

The usual groaning, grunting and hungry shambling zombies also mingle with "partial" zombies".

The mashup of fairy tales and zombies is so cute. I look forward to more encounters of characters from other fairy tales.

Like all fairy tales, this story also has an underlying message that hits home just right.
